I also have Diverticular, I get no pain or other symptoms, apart I have had three massive bleeds.
The latest one last week started around 3am with me having stomic ake.
On going to the toilet I lost a large amount of blood, which contuinued for around five hours.
I was by then unable to stand, so I phoned my son to ask him to get me an ambulance.
at the hospital I was given 3 infusions of clear liquied and two infusions of blood. I was allowed home a few days later.
This last bleed was my worsr so far.
I will have to see what the follow up visets to doctor & hospital bring.
Any advice for me please?
I am a 73 year old male living in the UK.
